Default Ubuntu 8.04 and systemimager

Ok I have been trying to setup systemimager on Ubuntu 8.04 for about a week using info off the internet. Needless to say Im pretty patient but cannot get it installed leave alone working .

Is there any guide that works that would make this easier ? I have been through 12 server installs after experimenting with various different deb,tar,gz files. i have had dependencies missing and not installing properly , I have forced installs of deb files in an effort to give the stupid program its dependencies and ended up with trashed ubuntu server installs and had to start from scratch.

Any chance of a Perfect systemimage server walkthough for people like me ? ( judging from the web there are plenty of us :O )

I'd even change to a different distro to get it working , however i do need to backup feisty fawn servers to it so ubuntu was the natural choice for the systemimager server !

thanks

-cort

You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:

E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


running apt-get -f install then gets me this :-

So after a bit more jerking around we decided to do the entire setup just as you had done on debian.

So we spent the afternoon downloading and installing debian on the server , this is far as we got using the systemimager walkthrough install :-

phobos:~# vi /etc/apt/sources.list
phobos:~# apt-get update
Get:1 http://ftp.debian.org etch Release.gpg [386B]

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


any idea where we go from here ?

Seems nothing wants to cooperate
